[cheers and applause] you, paul. does the music just bring up your day? [applause] then he for the endorsement of the -- we appreciate the endorsement of the nra. [applause] last night was an important night for the country. [cheers and applause] they got the chance to cut through all the attacks and counterattacks and all the theatrics associate with the campaign and instead listen to substance. i appreciate the fact athat jim lehrer asked questions about substance. i appreciated that i was able to ask obama about obamacare. i asked, why is it that the middle class is still buried in this country? why we have millions of people out of work? why is it that half of our children coming out of college cannot find a job? why is it that when he took office, 32 million people are on food stamps? i asked him those questions. you heard his answers. as a result of those answers, the american people recognize that he and i stand for something very dif

. there is something they are concerned about with mitt romney, which is why they are undecided. in 10 states, two weeks ago, there were 6% of the voters undecided. that is a pretty significant amount. it sounds like a small number, but a pretty significant amount. did that 6% look at romney last night and say, this is somebody i feel a lot better about than i did coming into this debate. some were not paying attention and some were. for those who were not -- who were paying attention, the answer has to be yes. i think you will see a bump in the polls for romney. 67% believed that romney won the debate. that is a stunning number. usually, our side thinks our guy one and their side thinks there got one. -- thinks their guy won. it was pretty decisive. >> explain to a group of people -- i doubt there is an undecided voter in this room. what do undecided voters look like? >> the kind of people who tell the waiter to come back at a restaurant because they have not made up their mind. [laughter] when you look at undecided voters, they generally tend to be younger women than anything else. in this case,

] the irony is we have seen this model work well in massachusetts. gov. romney did a good thing to working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model. as a consequence people are covered there. it has not destroyed jobs. as a consequence we have a system where we have the opportunity to start bringing down costs instead of leaving millions of people out in the cold. >> year five seconds when a long way. until the president what you -- tell the president correctly wide - why you think what he just said is wrong. >> first of all, i like the way we did it in massachusetts. i like the way we had republicans and democrats come together and work together. what you did was push through a plan without a single republican vote. when massachusetts did something quite extraordinarily, elected a republican senator to stop obamacare, you pushed it through anyway. instead of bring america together and having the discussion on this important topicshe pushed through something that, you and nancy pelosi and harry reid thought was the best answer and drove it through. wha

said it well yesterday -- he is not a flake of mind, he is a distinguished member of the united states senate. when he made it -- when he called that reprehensible and challenged you to withdraw it, mr. romney, let's put that aside and talk about health care. let talk about education, less talk about training, let's talk about new jobs, let's talk about infrastructure, let's talk about are different visions for massachusetts. that's what the people of massachusetts want to talk about. >> i want to know why you spent millions of dollars showing advertisements of strikers and the company had nothing to do with, talking about staples, one of the finest companies in the state of massachusetts that employs 1200 people with an average wage of his $35,000 -- or why you spent millions of dollars doing that is beyond me, if you are so into talking about the issues because that is all i have talked about until one week ago what we revealed from an article in what the boston papers something about your blind trust that appeared not to be quite so blind. [applause] >> mr. romney, i will provide th

believe that government has a responsibility to care for them? >> of course not. i agree with mitt romney when he says his comments were poorly phrased. keefe said they were in elegantly stated. i think there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power in perpetuity. the reason i think that is failing is, even those americans, if you break down that 47%, there is a significant chunk of people, receiving social security, who have paid into it their entire life. that is very different from being dependent on welfare. that is a critical safety net our society has counted on that we need to insure remain strong for generations to come. even those who are receiving welfare right now, most americans do not want to stay dependent on government. they want to work for the american dream. they want to work to provide for themselves and their families. i think that is why the obama administration's objective is essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as po

and education. governor romney talked about medicaid and how we can send it back to the states. that means a 30% cut in the primary program we held for seniors in nursing homes, kids with disabilities. that is not a right strategy for us to move forward. >> what about simpsons bowles? >> i have my own plans. if you want to make adjustments, make it. go to congress and fight for it. >> that is what we have done. >> you have been president for four years. he said he would cut the deficit in half. we still have trillion-dollar deficits. if you are reelected, we will get to a trillion-dollar debt. you have said you will cut the deficit in half. you find $4 trillion in cuts. we still show trillion-dollar deficits every year. that does not get the job done. why is it that i do not want to raise taxes? i do not want to raise taxes on people. in 2010, he said he would extend the tax policies we have now and not raise taxes because when the economy is going slow like this, you should not raise taxes on anyone. the economy is still going slow. it is growing more slowly now than when he made that statemen
